Vivienne’s poetry and short stories have appeared in various publications including Short Stories Australia and Blue Dog, and she’s won prizes and a commendation in competitions. She regularly performs her poetry at readings and conducts workshops for writers on presenting their work in public and on performance poetry.
She has had full length plays produced in Seattle,
I am a crumbling rock
I am a dream in patchwork
I am a giant balanced on a splinter
I am a basket of guilt
I am an outward breath
I am the dust on the shelf of memory
I am the hands of a baby
I am a glance at meaning
I am the crease in the curtain of denial
I am the green of valleys
I am a splash on a canvas
I am the water on desert seeds
And I am the christening of niggling questions
Who laid bare the kernel?
Who stencils humanity?
Who will embrace the flame?
I am the mournful song
I am the hopeful prayer.
Tune in next week when Poet Tina Louise returns with another piece of fine work for Peace Tree readers.
